Richard Prince presents in Manhis subversive and ironic choices of images of men and masculinity. Spanning the entire spectrum of artistic media, Prince creates paintings, object art, drawing, photographs and collages. Materials from literary texts as well as cartoons and often crude, sexually- and male-oriented jokes find their way into his art, thus further allowing the artist to cross conventional borders. Within this book we see Prince's American cowboy photographs (one of his preferred motifs in which the text is often altered), his self-portraits, his paintings of jokes and texts, his altered ads and his sketches (such as the one of Snow White and the seven dwarfs in compromising positions). This well-designed and reproduced publication, featuring nearly 90 color images, is a true artist's book, conceived by Prince himself.
